BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

The FIGS. 1-59 herein depict exemplary embodiments of the present invention constructed in accordance with the teachings expressed herein.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Aspects, features and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with regard to the accompanying description with reference to the drawing figures. What follows are one or more embodiments of the present invention. It should be apparent to those skilled in the art that those embodiments provided herein are illustrative only and not limiting, having been presented by way of example only. All the features disclosed in this description may be replaced by alternative features serving the same purpose, and equivalents or similar purpose, unless expressly stated otherwise. Therefore, numerous other embodiments of the modifications thereof are contemplated as falling within the scope of the present invention as defined herein and equivalents thereto. Use of absolute terms, such as “will not,” “will,” “shall,” “shall not,” “must,” and “must not,” are not meant to limit the present invention as the embodiments disclosed herein are merely exemplary.

The present invention is an integrated electronic credit application, contracting and securitization system, process, apparatus and article of manufacture, suitable for the automotive industry. In one embodiment, the present invention comprises the following integrated components: a Credit Application Module, an eContracting Module and an eDocument Storage Module.

Credit Application Module—Overview

The Credit Application Module is “a centralized credit application entry and routing system which accepts applications from, for example, automotive dealerships, electronically and selectively forwards them to funding sources, including funding sources having computerized credit application systems.” Exemplary embodiments of the Credit Application Module are set forth in U.S. Pat. No. 5,878,403, which is incorporated herein by reference. Selected information acquired and generated by the Credit Application Module, including for example, customer information, lending/funding decision, etc, is then used as input to the eContracting Module.

eContracting Module—Overview

The eContracting Module is an electronic contracting and same day funding system which electronically transmits contract information to financing sources. Details of exemplary embodiments of the eContracting Module are provided in the section entitled: “eContracting Functional Requirements”.

eDocument Storage Module—Overview

The eDocument Storage Module “implements digital encryption for the electronic transmission, storage and retrieval of authenticated documents and that enables the establishment of the identity of the originator of an electronic document and of the integrity of the information contained in such a document. Together these provide irrevocable proof of authenticity of the document. The system and method of the present invention provides for “paper-less” commercial transactions.

After an eContract is created and signed it is deposited, along with any other ancillary documents/information, into a “Vault” and an authoritative copy of the eContract is designated. An “Ownership Record” is created listing the dealer and/or the financing source as the owner/control party.

Details of exemplary embodiments of the eDocument Storage Module are provided in the section entitled: “Securitization Vault, Functional Requirements”.

Additional details of exemplary embodiments of the eDocument Storage Module are set forth in U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,615,268, 5,748,738, 6,237,096 and 6,367,013, Publication Nos. 2001/00002485 and 2002/0184217, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.

Operational Flow

Exemplary operational flows of the overall system and method in accordance with the present invention are shown by FIGS. 34-39 entitled “Master eContracting Flow Chart”.

APPENDIX Additional Information

Additional aspects, features and advantages of the present invention is provided in the section entitled: “Electronic Contracting and Securitization for the Automotive Finance Industry, Overview” supplanted with FIGS. 40-59.

CONCLUSION

Having now described exemplary embodiments of the present invention, it should be apparent to those skilled in the art that the foregoing is illustrative only and not limiting, having been presented by way of example only. All the features disclosed in this specification (including any accompanying claims, abstract, and drawings) may be replaced by alternative features serving the same purpose, and equivalents or similar purpose, unless expressly stated otherwise. Therefore, numerous other embodiments of the modifications thereof are contemplated as falling within the scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims and equivalents thereto.

For example, the techniques described herein may be implemented in hardware or software, or a combination of the two. The techniques may be implemented in computer programs executing on programmable computers that each include a processor, a storage medium readable by the processor (including volatile and nonvolatile memory and/or storage elements), at least one input device and one or more output devices. Program code is applied to data entered using the input device to perform the functions described and to generate output information. The output information is applied to one or more output devices.

Each program may be implemented in a high level procedural or object oriented programming language to communicate with a computer system, however, the programs can be implemented in assembly or machine language, if desired. In any case, the language may be a compiled or interpreted language.

Each such computer program is preferably stored on a storage medium or device (e.g., CD-ROM, hard disk or magnetic diskette) that is readable by a general or special purpose programmable computer for configuring and operating the computer when the storage medium or device is read by the computer to perform the procedures described in this document. The system may also be considered to be implemented as a computer-readable storage medium, configured with a computer program, where the storage medium so configured causes a computer to operate in a specific and predefined manner. For illustrative purposes the present invention is embodied in the system/apparatus configuration, method of operation and product or computer-readable medium, such as carrier waves, floppy disks, conventional hard disks, CD-ROMS, Flash ROMS, nonvolatile ROM, RAM and any other equivalent computer memory device. It will be appreciated that the system, apparatus, method of operation and product may vary as to the details of its configuration and operation without departing from the basic concepts disclosed herein.
